1. An information processing apparatus, comprising:
a detection unit configured to detect a position of a head of a user;
a storage unit configured to store information associated with a first head related transfer function of the user;
a first determination unit configured to determine, based on the detected position of the head and the stored information, a position of a first measurement point of a plurality of measurement points for measurement of the first head related transfer function of the user, wherein the position of the first measurement point is different from a position of a second measurement point of the plurality of measurement points; and
a control unit configured to:
select a first sound source matching or approximate to the determined position of the first measurement point; and
control the selected first sound source to output measurement signal sound from the determined position of the first measurement point.
